AGENCY: The Internal Revenue Service (IRS), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on information collections, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The IRS is soliciting comments concerning Information Return of U.S. Persons With Respect To Foreign Disregarded Entities (FDEs) and Foreign Branches (FBs).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Information Return of U.S. Persons With Respect To Foreign Disregarded Entities (FDEs) and Foreign Branches (FBs). OMB Number: 1545–1910. Form Number: Form 8858 and Schedule M (Form 8858). Abstract: Form 8858 and Schedule M are used by certain U.S. persons that own a foreign disregarded entity (FDE) directly or, in certain circumstances, indirectly or constructively. These forms also now implement the relevant provisions of Public Law 115–97 (Schedule M (Form 8858)). Section 14302 of Public Law 115–97 (IRC 904(d)(1)(B)—FTC category for foreign branch income) requires additional reporting by a foreign branch (FB) owned by a U.S. person. SUMMARY: Form 8858 Current Actions: (1) On page 1, we changed the title to include foreign branches as Form 8858 will be used to collect information from foreign branches as required by new sections 91 and 904(d)(1)(B). References to foreign PO 00000 Frm 00070 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 branches are added throughout the Form 8858, and foreign disregarded entities and foreign branches are abbreviated as FDE and FB; (2) Also, on page 1, for purposes of filtering, we added checkboxes to identify whether the FB or FDE is owned by a U.S. person, controlled foreign corporation (CFC), or controlled foreign partnership (CFP), and whether this is the initial or final Form 8858 filed; (3) On page 2, Schedule C, we added several additional income line items, and one for income tax expense, to correspond to items reflected on Form 1118, as modified, for FTC reporting by FBs pursuant to section 14302 of Public Law 115–97; (4) Also, on page 2, Schedule C–1, we made changes requested by CC:INTL to clarify reporting of gains and losses on remittances by FDEs and FBs; (5) On page 3, Schedule G, we deleted old questions 4 and 5a to 5c, and added new questions 6 to 8, and 10 to 13. Questions 6 and 7 were added to address base erosion under sections 59A(d) and 59(c)(2). Question 8 was added to identify whether the FB or FDE was a qualified business unit under IRC 989(a), which will enhance reporting of FB activities and remittances under IRC 987. Questions 10 to 13 are modifications of old questions 4 and 5a to 5c, regarding dual consolidated losses, to provide more transparent and accurate reporting of DCLs incurred by FBs or FDEs of a U.S. owner; (6) On page 4, we added Schedule I, Transferred Loss Amounts, which will indicate whether section 91 (section 14102 of Pub. L. 115–97) applies. Also, Schedule I will indicate whether a domestic corporation transferred foreign branch assets to a foreign corporation, which would invoke section 91, and require the inclusion of the transferred loss amount into income; (7) Also, on page 4, we added Schedule J, Income Taxes Paid or Accrued, which will provide additional information on the foreign taxes paid or accrued by the FB or FDE, converted to U.S. dollars and classified into separate FTC categories, including the new category under section 904(d)(1)(B) (section 14302 of Pub. L. 115–97). Schedule M (Form 8858) A third column heading was added to report transactions of an FDE or FB of a U.S. tax owner with corresponding changes to columns (a)–(e). The instructions will clarify that the Schedule M (Form 8858) must be completed and attached to the Form 8858 to report transactions between the FB or FDE and the filer of Form 8858 or other related entity, regardless of the tax owner of the FB or FDE.
